The You and a View team welcomes all people who are thinking about renting up to three pitches on your yard, property or grounds to great campers. Certainly, many questions come up. In order to provide you with the best possible advice, we provide you with the most important information here. This way, you can have a well-informed discussion with your family and everyone involved about becoming part of the You and a View community.
There is a reason that hosts of You and a View can only rent out a maximum of three pitches on the property. This is because they do not fall under the transnational definition of camping and tent sites. Means for the hosts that they are not “structural installations” for which a permit from the competent authority is required. Of course, it is important that the offered pitches are not located in nature reserves, landscape protection areas, FFH zones, biospheres, etc.
The best reasons to advertise pitches through You and a View!
1. additional source of income from parking space rental
2. increase in direct marketing
3. renting with little own effort
4. advertise pitches for free
5. flexibility in the rental of the pitch
6. quality management of the advertisements
You need at least one parking space, which is located on your property.
Pitches should be a little secluded and in the countryside with a view of the greenery.
The entrance and driveway should be about 4 metres high and 3 metres wide.
The soil should be good ground to drive on (lawn, meadow, sandy path, gravel), but if possible no loose soil or mud.
You don’t have to offer toilets, electricity, water or showers – you can do without!
You should have a desire for guests, fun in nice conversations and interested visitors.
You and a View is an intermediary platform for campers who want to camp away from the mass of green and natural, individual pitches. And for those who want to host. Anyone who owns a rural field, a farm or a nice big garden with a view of the horizon can join in and become a host.
Your advertisement on our website is 100% free of charge!If your pitch is successfully placed, you keep 87.5% of the revenue. 12.5% is reserved by You and a View to cover marketing, software, systems and communication costs.
We stand for authentic, sustainable and nature-loving accommodation in the great outdoors. Our guests do not expect a usual campsite from you! You have an unused space in the yard and you don’t know what could be there? Perfect for a pitch on You and a View, whether grass, concrete or dirt track.
If the guest books your pitch on our website, the booking is immediately confirmed and booked.
If you do not want a booking to be confirmed directly without your consent, “Booking on request” can be set. Here you will receive an email with the guest’s booking details (arrival information, name, etc.), then you can decide whether to accept or decline the booking.
Guest and host are liable in case of damage with their personal liability insurance. You and a View accepts no liability for any arrangements between you and the guests. The legal and factual requirements of the published pitches must be checked by you in each individual case. The activity of You and a View is limited exclusively to the publication of the data and the marketing through the pitch placement platform. You and a View is not liable for damages or other claims arising from the relationship between host and guest.
Only as much effort as you want. You can simply offer the pitch without extras and theoretically not even have to be on site, or you can offer various extras such as electricity, water, shower and leisure activities and charge for the extra effort.
